More Fortnitemares 2020 event leaks are coming with an update expected shortly.
Fortnitemares 2020 is just around the corner, with an update slated for Fortnite starting this weekend. Fans have speculated what the new update will bring this year: zombies? A unique temporary mode? We won’t know until the update is available.
We’ve seen several leaks about the event coming out of Update 14.30, including one suggesting Midas will be returning as a ghost or zombie. Data miner Mang0e added to the leaks with news of a “Cosmos” Jetpack and a new set of “Fancy Kevin” skins.
FORTNITEMARES SKIN INFO:
A male “Fancy Kevin” skin set + wrap will be coming with this year’s Fortnitemares. This outfit will be a new edition to the Cube Series.
Materials exist in the files, and some upcoming CID’s I obtained back me up.

Kevin, for those who don’t know, was the name given by the community to the Purple Cube that landed on the island during Chapter 1. Epic adopted the name and used it in several cosmetic promotional items, ads. and tips in the game. This is the reason why the Kevolution Energy factory is named after Steamy Stacks.
As for what this skin looks like, we might not know until it arrives in the Item Shop. Kevin fans should save their V-Bucks in the meantime.
Now let’s move on to the Jetpack that was found in the game files. We’ve seen Jetpacks in Fortnite before, and they’ve almost always been available in temporary modes. According to Mang0e, this Jetpack has new effects and, it seems, and will not be for a temporary mode.
Well, it’s not for the LTM…👀
A cosmos game cue was also added, with some interesting “Zapper Weapon” and lightning particle effects from STW, but they have been added to BR.

We’re not 100% sure whether or not this Jetpack will come during the Fortnitemares event or if it will be part of Stark Tech later in the season. Jetpacks occupy an interesting place in Fortnite when balanced.
Keep in mind that this Jetpack could be one of nine leaked weapons found in the game’s files.
